    Hi
    I am doing a footprint for a smd 0603 resistor.
    Can someone clear what padstack (pad, paste mask and solder mask) and footprint dimensions i need. I believe the footprint is from the land pattern.
    Its my first design so please bear with me.
    Thanks

    What are you using to design your board? Most software should have this already built in.

    Orcad. I am not sure of dimensions from the datasheet.

    Hi,
    The padstack is easy, 0.965mm x 0.8mm -(pad), same for the paste mask. Then the solder mask top is bigger for example 1.165mm x 1mm. This is used in Orcad to create footprint. Note: 0603 package

    I need the dimensions of the pad width, length between the pads (inner to inner), then the length from the middle to middle of the pad. Do I get these dimensions from the land pattern or physical 0603 size.
    Thanks in advance
